. then we have defense cuts to 3 billion in jobs. jobs is the thing that will really reduce the deficit. more taxpayers is going to result in the lower deficit than already this year. if we look at the last year we've seen the deficit go down because you've seen a little bit of success in the job market. not enough, but you have seen us reducing that deficit. that's really what the balancing act is all about. i would think that any fair-minded member of congress would want to see us balance and not just ask to solve the deficit crisis by forcing it all on the shoulders of people who defend upon important government programs. >> john: it seems inspiring that you're trying to sneak sanity into the budget debate. i commend you for it. you were there when the president laid out his gun control proposals. >> yes. >> are these campaign-style events the best way for him to drum up support for this issue? >> yes, and the reason why i think so, the american public supports common-sense gun-violence prevention. we support universal background checks closing the gun show loopholes. we support bann

proposal saying we believe there is a better way to reduce the deficit. the president's sequester should be replaced with spending cuts and reforms. that will start us on the path to balancing the budget in ten years. there is no balance in terms of revenue. the question is are congress and the white house headed for yet another big showdown. to come to us from washington to answer that question is karen bass from california. thank you for coming to the war room. >> thank you for having me again. >> jennifer: you bet. so the republicans are saying that obama's plan as he announced today are dead on arrival. are they serious? is this just posturing before they reach a deal? >> i certainly hope it is because the fact of the matter is we're three weeks away from the hammer falling. what the president has called for is for the republican majority to act responsibly. why on earth would they want to send our economy into another recession. if we can't come to a grand deal by march 1st. what the president has said and the democratic leadership hats said is okay do another short-term proposal bu

. >> but republicans got to the brink and caved on the deficit ceiling. they got to the brink and they caved on sequester the first round. now, sequester comes back and still with the budget. and and they are saying, no, no, no. they are saying again that we are never going to agree with this unless we get major, major spending cuts and social security and welfare but can we believe him anymore? i mean it looks to me at the same time like they will get to the brink again and realize, no, no, no. we can't do this. if we look at recent history, that would be the course. what's fascinating is the republicans see this as the major bargaining chip to get their desired spending cuts but if we remember from their campaign last fall we saw mitt romney and paul rind on trying to avert the sequester saying this would be a really bad thing, you know, especially for defense. now, we kind of see a reverse here john boehner has said that he does not support a delay which the president wants, which the president outlined last week. so they are saying, we are ready to -- willing to get this through. d
